Kwangbok Street Designated as Greening Model
Pyongyang, November 21 (KCNA) -- Kwangbok Street in Pyongyang was designated as a model unit for the country in greening and gardening when the autumn land management campaign was making headway.

The Ministry of City Management, Pyongyang City and Mangyongdae District had vigorously pushed ahead with its preparations.

A general blueprint for greening and gardening Kwangbok Street had been worked out and it was put on a full-fledged practical stage in the period of the general mobilization for autumn land management of the year.

According to the general blueprint, various species of trees will be planted around the apartments and public buildings from the Jongim Bridge to the Mangyongdae Schoolchildren's Palace by April 2012 in which falls the centenary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung.

When good species of trees including such needle-leaved trees as fir, Picea koraiensis and Sabina chinensis, such broad-leaved trees as gingko, zelkova, Acer saccharinum, Eucommia ulmoides and Evodia Daniellii Benn, and shrubs take root in the area in a few years to come, Kwangbok Street will nestle in woods. The green spaces per capita in the district will reach tens of square meters.

New wonderful recreation grounds and a number of big and small parks have already taken shape to give new looks to the street. With the progress of greening and gardening, it will turn in the near future into a more beautiful area good to live in, which is overgrown with green trees.

The Korean people are turning out enthusiastically in the work to green and garden all the towns of the country, keeping pace with the campaign in Kwangbok Street.
